A total of 5,500 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, which several European countries have suspended over blood clot fears, have already been administered in the Balearics, according to the local ministry for health.

The European Medicines Agency has said the Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid vaccine can continue to be used during an investigation into cases of blood clots that have prompted several European countries to pause their use of the shot.

The EMA said 30 cases of “thromboembolic events” or blood clots had been reported among 5 million people who had received the jab in Europe so far. “The vaccine’s benefits continue to outweigh its risks,” the regulator said in a statement.

Several European countries have either suspended inoculations with the AstraZeneca vaccine as a precautionary measure or banned the use of a specific batch after blood clots formed in some people who had received the jab.

A very big mistake to make! When it is clearly in the public domain that there could be such an health issue with AZ, then not taking safety precaucions could be a disastrous course follow - both for the recipients and government.

Ms Armengol please force me to have an injection that might eff me up. Too many rushed vaccines. Everyone seems to have the magic potion, it's a worry.
